We had OEM Michelins on another car and they were legally worn out at about half the rated miles. Michelin gave us a 50% credit. You can't ask for more than that!

America’s Tire stores seem to be able to claim warranty on our OEM tires. There are examples if you search, so I visited my local store and got about 50% off. 18k miles, rear tires were at or below 3/32. No questions asked, very easy.

Curious...we don't have America's tire near me, so on your recommendation, I searched. I found general warranty information on Michelin's site at www.michelinman.com/generalWarranty.html Their general info indicates that their warranty does NOT apply to OEM's beginning with the 2018 model year.

I'm in luck! Except I got about 32k miles out of mine before I pulled them off. Haven't bought new replacement summer tires yet, maybe I'll see what happens at my local Discount Tire. Might get a handful of dollars off a new set after all.

Yes I read that also and was surprised that others had success at America’s Tire Co. I walked into the store with low expectations but it worked out for me.

Do you have Discount Tire? Same company as America's Tire, just different branding.

That Michelin link is a bit confusing. I agree one footnote says mileage warranty doesn't apply to OEMs 2018+, however another footnote down below says it applies to all OEMs from 2011+. Then they have a link with tread warranty per tire model and it also says it applies to 2011+ models. Tesla’s warranty mentions that tires have their own warranty from the tire manufacturer.

A good friend of mine just had new MXM4’s installed on his 2018 LR RWD car. He went through his local tire dealer for warranty. The dealer checked the tread depth and verified it was even wear across the tires and forwarded this info to Michelin. Michelin gave him about $489 in warranty credit. He thought it was fair on Michelin‘s part.
